A group of women out together with the only aim of having fun and celebrating the bride…. Bachelorette parties are all about the good times! If you are planning on taking an international trip for a bachelorette destination and are travelling with a very diverse bunch of people, there’s a perfect place to go – New York City! This thriving metropolis in New York state is one the most buzzing urban hubs to visit, more so with a group of your closest friends. NYC has all you could ever want in terms of entertainment, fashion, food, clubbing and luxury; it’s basically one of the most fun-nest destinations for a girlfriends’ getaway.
New York City has restaurants serving cuisines from around the world, luxury lounges, pricey nightclubs, smaller neighborhood pubs and loads of eccentric and kitschy establishments as well. You should definitely visit Times Square in the evening to people watch and restaurant hop. One of the best parts of the city is that you can find all kinds of eating places, everything from funky modern cuisine to quaint tea rooms for dessert and chitchat.
If you and your girls want to go nightclubbing there are literally hundreds of options to pick from depending on your neighbourhood. This city has some of the most popular places for more risqué bachelorette bashes: Clubs and theatre restaurants to go to if drag queen performers, naughty desserts and a decidedly unique atmosphere is your thing. There’s also other veneus with more intimate lounges and even strip tease classes.
Of course not everyone wants or will be comfortable doing anything too risqué so there’s tons of other girly stuff to try. Another interesting bachelorette party destination is ‘The Awesome 80s Prom’, an interactive and improv theatre where they recreate the best of a cheesy ‘80s high school prom experience and it’s totally interactive. Your turn to be prom queen maybe?! The Beauty Bar in the East Village is another bachelorette hotspot. It is a vintage beauty salon turned bar where you can get your manicure and a cocktail.
You cannot think of NYC without thinking of ‘Sex and the City’ a TV series that raised New York and girl bonding to cult status! So make like Carrie Bradshaw and the crew and take a Sex and the City tour where you take a bus tour and not only watch clips of the hit show but get to see all the places where the magic happened on set, like the characters’ apartment buildings, the Plaza and the famous Magnolia Bakery among others! If the ‘Friends’ series was more your cup of tea, you can explore more low key places in the city and the gorgeous Central Park. Carry goodies and have a lovely picnic in the park with your girls.
You cannot leave the city without visiting the famous Tiffany & Co., the luxury jewellery megasite and the place to drool over engagement rings that cost more than your yearly income. You could visit the gigantic flagship Macy’s store and end your day with a trip to the sinful Godiva Chocolatier close by. Not only do they have small goodies but also chocolate based drinks.
Parties, tourist spots, cultural spots, good food and tons of shopping… what more could any bunch of girls ask for. Stay tuned for more wedding planning tips from Marry Me – Mumbai wedding planners.
